not be willing or able to, seemingly, take on big tasks. >> that happened all this week. kristin is live at the white house. a lot of talk. we're one day closer to that deadline. what can we expect to hear from the president in the next hour? >> hi there, richard. we expect the president to continue to push to get a big deal. what's a big deal? about $4 trillion in deaf sigz reductions over the next decade. at the end of last week, it looked like he and speaker boehner were moving towards the same page in terms of trying to get a big deal. that fell apart over the weekend. so we expect the president to resume calls for a big deal to say now is the time to seize the moment. there will be political pain on both sides. what he means by that is the democrats will have to come to the table over entitlements, making small changes to things like social security and medicare and the republicans will need to come to the table in terms of rolling back tax break for wealthy corporations and americans. as you said, richard, he's going to hammer this point that they will continue to work until they g

today? >> this wouldn't be the big deal if this is the only day, but this is day after day the spring into the summer. then let's pile on a top of humidity. that gets to the people and aggravates everyone. this is where the center of the heat is. right over the top of the eastern half of the country with the exception not being up in the great lakes. this is already the heat index. what time is it? it's 10:00. we are at 105 already in louisville. areas of memphis, nashville and st. louis are right behind. the worst has been centered over the ohio river valley and southern indiana. later today, this is my forecast heat index. this is how hot i'm predicting it's going to get. the worst is up here with the dew points at the highest. we are thinking 110 in louisville, 110 in nashville. i've got my money on 115 in memphis as the hottest heat index in the country. it goes from oklahoma city to the east coast. this is one of the first humid days we had from new york to deep, deep baltimore, raleigh. you go down the coast with no exceptions. this is historic in oklahoma city. we now had 13 da

-health clinical toothpaste. life opens up when you do. >>> the numbers are still rolling in but the big 2012 fundraising winner looks like president obama. the commander in chief has set a $60 million goal for this quarter. and michele bachmann is spending some of her money on a new ad in iowa. check it out. >> as a mom of five, a foster parent, and a former tax lawyer and now a small business job creator, i know that we can't keep spending money that we don't have. >> today the obama administration plans to announce two programs to help unemployed homeowners. usa today reports that the program would give people out of work more time to pay their mortgages. and we're less than an hour away from the players going into the cabinet room at the white house to try to figure out a deal to cut the debt. the big headline today, the president has put social security, medicare, and medicaid on the table if republicans will agree to tax hikes. it's an attempt to break an impasse. the president and the speaker have met privately to talk about the deal. let's bring in the editor and political columnist a

it for someone you love. >> i mean, is a big part of the problem here convincing the american people that these cuts won't be devastating? >> absolutely it is. look, we've got a problem in this country, chris. we want more government than we're willing to pay for. and that's coming to a head in this debate over debt deficits and raising the debt limit. those ads protesting against some of those cuts to some degree help the democrats in the obama administration make the case that we need more revenue. we can't do it all on the spending side. democrats have been trying to make the case that the spending cuts they're for are not hitting beneficiaries directly, but that becomes a difficult argument to make, the more interest groups connected with medicare and the health care system get hit. >> all right. john harwood, got od to see you. i want to bring in "washington post" columnist ezra kline. good to see you. >> good morning. >> what's the dels' strategy here? >> these cuts are not necessarily new. they're on a charm offensive, i'd say, to say that, look, we've put everything on the ta

get something done. there's a real big problem here inside the republican conference, and nobody on the democratic side should be held responsible for that. we are together on the democratic side. we want to get this thing done. we want to put skin in the game, and we seem to be getting pushed back on every front, from the republican side. and that is a real, real big problem. somebody ought to be speaking for the republican party on this issue. >> congressman jim clyburn, thank you so much for being here this morning. >> thank you. >>> president obama proves he's still a prolific fund-raiser. wait until you hear how much money his campaign officially raised with the dnc in the second quarter. that coming up in five minutes. but we've got some breaking news right now. police say three explosions have rocked mumbai, india. it happened in a crowded neighborhood in the central part of the city. the other two blasts hit a famed jewelry market and a busy business district. no word yet on any injuries or deaths. we are working to get more information. we'll have more updates as they be

contrite and expressing regret as you just heard. but there are two big things. most damaging of all, he was pressed several times on whether he had had any conversations with all of his various contacts and friends at rupert murdoch's company in the u.k. about a $12 billion attempt to buy out the reminder of bskyb, the big broadcaster over there. this was a deal that the british government has quasi-judicial authority to approve or deny. all he could say is he had no inappropriate conversations. he kept using that phrase. frankly, it didn't sound like the members of parliament really bought that line. the second thing, a really explosive claim, that someone in the senior government, a senior government official had been hacked and bugged while andy coulson was there. these kinds of allegations are -- they just keep cropping up every day and it doesn't look like this kind of statement or investigations are going to end any time soon. >> yeah, we could be early in the game at the moment. michael, i want to play some sound from yesterday's testimony, what we heard there in parliament. take
